Sun 2nd Dec – Sunday Night Quizzing In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Seal (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Ingrid Michaelson (music round)

Sunday is here. December is here.  In between decorating the turkey and sending telegrams to the Queen, you should fit in  a visit to the pub quiz. The quiz, unlike your ex, is always here for you.

Meanwhile, here is the video for tonight’s music round free answer which relates to the Tolbooth Tavern quiz at 8pm:

I don’t know much about Ingrid Michaelson but I like the tune and the video is entertaining too: a back-to-front tribute to an old Robert Palmer vid from the eighties.

Palmer used to get stick for his videos being “sexist”. Thirty years later this vid turns it round. Nice work.

Anyway, see you at the quiz tonight and don’t forget: just cos its December, I aint going to be wearing tinsel or any of that hoo-hah. Calm down. It’s only Dec 2nd.

Yeah.

Sunday Dreaming

It’s Sunday so need tae get down Leith or up the Canongate

Persevere – 6pm. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: The music round includes Strawberry Switchblade. See the vid below from TOTP 84

Tolbooth Tavern – 8pm. Jackpot £30. Cheat: The picture round includes your old pal Joni Mitchell

By the way, don’t bother reading the youtube comments for this one. It’s mainly “men” wondering whether or not the guitar is plugged in, whether the girl can actually play it, etc.

Standard stupid sexist shite. My recommendation is that if you find yourlsef accidentally making online comments like this one day, then stop.

Sunday Service: Pub Quiz For Your Pleasure

Think about pleasure. What does it mean?

Does it mean a walk in the countryside? Maybe. But with those midgies and lack of toilet facilities? Maybe not.

rubbish countryside
The Countryside: Rubbish

Does it mean sex? Maybe. But with those performance issues and gender politics? Maybe not.

Does it mean humping the opposition at pub quiz? Of course it does. Get your shot of pleasure. Tonight:

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: the music round includes an act named 5 Seconds of Summer. See vid below for the tune. It’s some weepy-weepy snowflake boyband shit.

8pm – The Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: The picture round includes the answer Apocalypse Now. It’s a film about th Vietnam War. It’s supposed to be genius but the only time I saw it I fell asleep. I’m not saying it’s a bad film, it’s just a bit long and I was a bit knackered.

Thanks Hearts And Hibs, You Pair of Wanks

Tonight: Monkey On. Joker Off.

Thanks to the inability of Hearts and Hibs to reach a conclusion to their cup-tie the other week, there is a replay tonight at Easter Road. The ensuing Leith-based chaos means that the Joker is skipping the quiz this week and closing early. Probably a smart move, but annoying nonetheless.

Anyway the Joker should have been £30 jackpot tonight and we’re assuming that tonight would count as a rollover so the jackpot will be £60 next Wednesday. See you then.

The Brass Monkey is on as usual as it is in a part of town generally unaffected by the nonsense that football sometimes becomes.

Brass Monkey (Drummond Street), 9pm

Jackpot: £30

Cheat: The music round includes Rosie Gaines. See this vid for the tune:
